Re: JANE KENNEDY (c1791-c1888)

It's my understanding that the Isabella Kennedy who married George Setter was the daughter of Alexander Kennedy, sister of Captain William Kennedy, and aunt of Alexander Kennedy Isbister. Elizabeth Setter, the daughter of George and Isabella, married John Norquay. The marriage date you list for Isab...

They parted in 1814 when HODGSON was discharged form HBC service. He left Moose to join his father at Lac des Chats on the Ottawa Ri...

I am trying to figure out one of John's daughter's marriages, as outlined on JT's HBCA Bio sheet. I am tracing the Alexander Christie family and their transatlantic family network.

Re: JOSEPH FINLAYSON (1830-1901)

Thanks for this page! After reading it, I realized that this Joseph Finlayson that I've been researching as part of the Davis-Hodgson family is the same Joseph Finlayson who I encountered while reading/writing my Master's thesis on the 1885 Rebellion.
